Chris Jericho and PAC Confirm Involvement in All Elite Wrestling

Kenny Omega to AEW All Elite Wrestling after nixing WWE

As previously announced, Cody and the Bucks will not only work for AEW in a wrestling capacity, but the trio will serve as Co-Executive Vice Presidents as well.

Jericho fanned the flames of a potential wrestling company war on Tuesday in Jacksonville when he said that AEW was about to "change the universe", a direct reference to the WWE calling their fanbase the "WWE Universe". However, there were reports that many fans with AEW gear or posters were turned away from SmackDown. Those names included Chris Jericho and former WWE Superstar Neville (PAC).

The first major announcement for the promotion was that "Double Or Nothing" the first major event for their brand, will be hosted at the iconic MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on May 25, 2019.

All Elite Wrestling held their press conference today in Jacksonville and there are a few notable differences with this company already.

Scottish women's wrestler Piper Niven is reportedly signing with WWE soon, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio. After the match, The Alpha was adamant that his time in the far east was far from over, even saying that he wanted to face new IWGP Heavyweight Champion, Hiroshi Tanahashi.

She also made a promise that AEW will pay male and female talent equally.
